A Shallow and Salty Ocean

A set of porcelain carafe and shot cups concepted during the annual Designers on Holiday residency on the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea.

Gotland has a rich abundance of sedimentary rocks that were deposited some 440 million years ago during the Silurian age when a warm, shallow, salty ocean covered the area. These rocks now stand as unique and unusual ancient rock formations that scatter across the island’s land and shores. Not only producing a dramatic visual landscape, the rock is used extensively in the island’s building and infrastructure industry.

A Shallow and Salty Ocean is homage to Gotland’s geographical and industrial heritage. Moulds were taken from select fragments of limestone and cast in fine porcelain resulting in an ongoing series of vessels. The intricate stone texture and sharp, aggressive crystalline structure makes drinking with these pieces a unique experience, being as much functional as they are sculptural.  

Available to purchase in the online store.
